Today marks the launch of the newest search engine to pop up with hopes of challenging Google. The search engine is called Cuil. The name is pronounced like "cool." The big difference between the Cuil engine and the other search engines that pop up now and again is that Cuil was built by some of the same folks that used to work on Google's search operations.

In fact the main character behind Cuil, Anna Patterson, came to Google originally when Google purchased a previous search engine she developed to update its own search technology. Cuil says that its database currently has 120 billon pages in its index.

Patterson believes that Google has about 40 billion pages in its index. The results returned from a search on Cuil have images and are arranged in a magazine-style column layout. Cuil was launched with $30 million in venture capitol backing.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
